History

The Village of Wyoming owes its birth to the Great Western Railway. Until its railway line went through between Sarnia and London, the site was farm land belonging to Thomas Brock and Robert McAuslan. In 1827, Plympton Township contained 75,907 acres that belonged to the Crown. The surveyors numbered the concessions, which run east and west, from Enniskillen north to the lake shore and the lots from Sarnia Township east to the Warwick Plympton Townline.

The front concession, along Lake Huron, they laid out in French Canadian style in 51 lots to give as many farms as possible a lakeside location. Once surveyed, much of the Township was granted to the sons and daughters of United Empire Loyalists, most of whom sold their rights.
